Switch from iDevices with Siri

This year's Consumer Electronics Show(CES) is all about anything and everything connected to the internet as IoT(Internet of Things) is getting so much attention and every big giant is eyeing it's huge future market. To add to this list  iDevices - a company developing IoT's, announced a HomeKit-enabled product called the iDevices Switch, a Bluetooth Smart and Wi-Fi compatible wall plug that's expected to ship in the first half of the year.

To use Switch you just essentially have to plugged into the existing outlet. Switch is connected to the Internet and once the Switch is in outlet, the user can plug a household product (i.e A light bulb) into the Switch. User can simply control this light bulb via the Switch app, so it's really easy to toggle any lights connected to Switch, on or off with a virtual switch. And thanks to HomeKit, the Switch app is compatible with Siri, so theoretically all a user would have to do is announce "Turn on the light bulb," and the light would pop on.

Now a unique thing about Switch here is that iDevices created a custom cloud for Switch to remove the need of costly hub, so it is not needed.Well thanks to IDevices Swritch we can be able to shut off a number of lights in your home with just one command "Siri, Good night".
